Share article:

Simon Cowell is set to offer the winner of the upcoming celebrity version of "The X Factor" a record deal with Syco.

The 59-year-old music mogul is planning to revamp the hit talent show with a star-studded version, and he is expected to hand the champion a lucrative deal with his record label as well as giving the triumphant contestant a chance to bag the Christmas number one single.

An insider told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: "Simon knows that getting the right stars to enter is the key to its success.

"So to make that more appealing he's decided to put a proper record deal with Syco on the table for the winner - with serious money behind it.

"It's a proper competition and they want people who can really sing but who are big personalities too."
